Barangaroo Botany


Barangaroo Reserve

Download Fact Sheet

A vital element in restoring the six-hectare artificial headland at Barangaroo Reserve has been the planting of over 75,000 native trees, plants and shrubs.

A profoundly unique project, the design team were exacting in their research, selecting species largely indigenous to the headlands and ridge tops surrounding Sydney.

The result is the exemplary Barangaroo Reserve, a place for everyone to immerse themselves in the beauty of Sydney Harbour and the historically relevant and naturally beautiful native gardens that now personify this remarkable headland. Find out more.
